Like Norman Rockwell, Dr. Seuss created every rough sketch, preliminary drawing, final line drawing, and finished work for each page of every project he illustrated.
Despite the technical and budgetary limitations of colour printing during the early and mid-twentieth century, Dr. Seuss was meticulous about colour selection. He created specially numbered colour charts and intricate colour callouts to precisely accomplish his vision for each book. Saturated reds and blues, for example, were carefully chosen for The Cat in the Hat to attract and maintain the visual attention of a six-year-old audience.
These official published editions capture the vibrancy and detail of the original.
